An Inspiring Read Jul 23, 2008
Well, I grant that I'm not exactly a member of this book's intended target audience but Mrs. Lindsey has crafted an interesting memoir that will undoubtedly inspire many a young girl. She wisely points out that even though she dreamed of once becoming a supermodel her successes never yielded genuine fulfillment. Upon forging a relationship with Jesus Christ in high school her new faith served to greatly diminish her satisfaction at being a festival queen. One of the things I really enjoyed about the book was all the quotations from scripture that she included in her narrative. I can honestly say that many of them were helpful and instructive for me. That the life of faith holds risks is undoubtedly true but its rewards are infinite.
Great for the teenage girl! Apr 12, 2008
It's a great book for teenage girls to read. The discussion questions are great to be discussed with a leader. It has great potential for teenage girls to form an accountability or mentor type relationship with an adult.
